Commercial Fire Damage Keeps Raleigh Restaurants Closed
Commercial Fire Damage
Kitchen fires can happen in both homes and businesses. When a restaurant in Raleigh experiences one, it can change everything in a matter of minutes. After the primary shock and evacuation of your restaurant, diners typically expect you to reopen quickly. After all, it was only a 'small fire.'
However, whenever a Raleigh restaurant sustains commercial fire damage, it can take a very long time to get everything back to normal again. SERVPRO technicians undergo extensive training and education so they can remediate problems caused by smoke, soot, and fire in a rapid manner. Working quickly not only gets the job done faster but it also keeps existing damage from spreading.
While experts recommend against using water on a kitchen fire as it sits on the stove, any areas that catch fire where firefighters attend to later can sustain water damage, as well. This damage continues to spread. It can also affect metal throughout your kitchen.
As moisture seeps underneath floors, inside walls, and behind cabinets, smokey residues and soot slowly harden on materials. The black-coated walls, shelves, equipment, and anything else needs specialized cleaning skills to restore them again. Without timely removal, the materials covered by soot and smoke can lose their shine or luster when cleaning does take place later.
Charring of walls and other structures requires repairs, as well. Removal of damaged materials and followed by replacements helps cut the odor down a great deal. However, the soot and smoke permeate everywhere, including the dining area. Your patrons might not expect the scent of your restaurant to also return to normal, but if it smells bad when they return, you should expect complaints.
Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) works alongside the rest of our crew members, ensuring your restaurant is genuinely ready to reopen. Scent makes up a large part of our daily lives. While eating a meal, much of the taste is made up of how it smells. Bad smells can adversely affect the taste so almost any food. We want to make sure that even the food served at your restaurant is once again “Like it never even happened.”
The technicians of SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest enjoy eating at our local restaurants with their families, and we want to help your restaurant reopen quickly after fire damage. Call us for our 24-hour service at (919) 790-1222 any day of the year.
